Polar King International creates new business unit

October 2020

The Polar King family of companies, Fort Wayne, Ind., has formed a new business unit, Polar King Mobile (PKM).

“Polar King Mobile is a business focused on providing North America’s first affordable small refrigerated trailer solution that does not compromise quality or performance,” said David Schenkel, president, Polar King Mobile. “After extensive research, we found there was an unmet demand in North America amongst catering companies, restaurants and farmers for commercial-grade economical refrigerated transport. We are pleased to introduce Polar King Mobile solutions to fulfill these needs. Refrigerated transport offered in North America is traditionally large and expensive ‘reefers’ running diesel-powered refrigeration units on trucks and semi-trailers. While these work well in some situations, they are not a fit for everyone. Small business owners, hunters, beverage resellers, fishermen and others often cannot afford conventional refrigerated transport solutions and neither want nor need large, oversized capacity.”

The 8- to 16-ft. small, refrigerated trailers from Polar King Mobile are designed and engineered specifically for outdoor and over the road use. The 100 percent seamless fiberglass design provides a continuous surface with rounded insulated corners to promote a sanitary environment. The NSF-approved non-slip flooring system also greatly reduces the risk of slips and falls, the company says. Since the unit is completely seamless, it can be cleaned with a hose. 

The new company will not sell direct to the public, but instead create a national network of value added resellers by recruiting trailer distributors from the North American Trailer Dealers Association.
